Original? Yes. Strange? You better believe it. Well honestly when I bought this I really didn't know what to expect and it delivered in spades. One of the cardinal rules of candy is if you read "chocolate flavoured" it's not real chocolate and it probably taste that way. The chocolate flavoured Caplico sticks didn't taste like real chocolate, but they did have an interesting cocoa flavour. I think the words “chocolate flavoured” is a very good description.
The texture on the other hand was weird. I thought it might be crunchy like sponge toffee based on the package, but instead it was more like a whipped chocolate that was left to settle. When I looked at it for real, I thought it looked like an Aero bar but the texture really wasn't like that at all either. It wasn’t as firm or chocolate like as an arrow, it was much softer.
The cone was the only thing that was the way I expected it to be. Nothing but a basic cone you would find on an average ice cream cone. The chocolate flavoured Caplico Stick was odd and really synthetic, I don't think I would recommend this unless you're the adventurous type.
